With my schedule, likely to be into July. It's no biggie in terms of people committing or anything, I just really don't want to end up doing it for half a dozen lads.

Another bad day for Boeing, reports of an engine cowling detaching from a Southwest Airlines flight operating a
Boeing 737-800 type.
Could well be something as simple as the cowling not being secured correctly during flightcrew walk around, has happened before. I think some airlines use a tech to do the walkarounds, but I`m not certain of that.
To my mind it should be one of the pilots,they sign the aircraft off.

This follows on from a number of high profile "issues" with Boeing Aircraft,assembly staff and the suspicious death recently of Boeing whistleblower John Barnett.

Long story short, I did somebody a good turn last week and they offered me a cinema for an evening. I think it might be the Comber venue AT mentioned. Asked for a film choice I nominated BoB and they seemed to think that was doable. So I was just gauging interest here, as my interested friends wouldn't fill out a row.

BTW Strand is closing for renovations, they had a competition for 'last screenings' before the current seetup closes and I nominated BoB for that too, I didn't win.

Great Film, much of the interest in Warbirds in the UK came from this movie, as a side note it was largely made by the people behind the Bond movies at the time.No CGI anywhere near it.lol

Strand Cinema might be an option for a viewing,there used to be a small private cinema (not mucky stuff) out near Comber, it was called The Tudor, run by the Spence family but it closed due to Covid, it was renamed Excelsior at some point.

Great line in one of the action sequences,when a German gunner spots a group of Spitfires coming in to attack, he exclaims in a thick Cockney accent " Spitfire ", always makes me grin, its a minor detail but funny.

Can you organise one?
